The green-thumbed technicians at Gardens by Marsetti cultivate lush, thick lawns with aeration and fertilization services. Clients consult with lawn specialists to describe their yard-related goals, such as achieving grass that's as comfortable to bare feet as socks made of wookie fur. Technicians thoroughly aerate grassy areas, removing plugs of soil to allow oxygen, water, and nutrients to enter the ground and nourish roots. After aerating lawns, technicians determine how much fertilizer is appropriate to foster grass health before feeding eager turf.
Rock & Rose Landscapes is an eco-friendly landscape design, installation, and maintenance firm that plants beds with climatically adapted foliage and feeds natural lawns and meadows with organic fertilizers. During a landscaping consultation, Rock & Rose's professional lawn pamperers will discuss specific, site-appropriate plans to reimagine boring backyards and weed-throttled gardens as well-manicured Edens. Ninety minutes is usually enough time to cover all aspects of a project—such as overall design, budget, and maintenance—and definitely enough time to cover the cultural significance of red-capped garden gnomes. While not included in today's deal, Rock & Rose also offers garden installations and on-going maintenance for clients who opt to implement proposed landscaping plans.
Family-owned and operated since the mid-1970s, Fregosi and Co. Paints is a local paint business and retailer of Benjamin Moore products. The blossoming company features four Bay Area locations, including this friendly South-of-Market showroom. Old-fashioned, knowledgeable customer service here comes straight from one of three generations of Fregosis and their staff, answering all paint-related questions with easy charm and industry know-how, but none of the pretension that can sometimes overwhelm folks at similar shops. These guys may provide the industrial-sized paint supplies and services to large-scale hotels and office buildings, but they are always happy to assist small contractors and DIY-ers with issues from color matching to tricky finishes. The showroom also supplies your peripheral paint needs, like tape, brushes and dropcloths.
Recently profiled by The Atlantic for its members' innovative inventions, TechShop’s supportive community of inventors, artists, technicians, and alchemists share their excitement about the next big idea in an environment limited only by their collective imagination. The 17,000-square-foot smorgasbord of inventive creativity beckons people of all skill levels to its DIY confines, where members can wield tools not found in most private workshops, slicing through steel with a plasma cutter or accessing 3-D design software to finally realize the goal of crawling inside the Internet. Hands-on classes jump-start creative juices, introducing students to vocational skills including welding, soldering, and woodworking. Neophyte inventors aged 12–17 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they don't break physics.
One of the oldest businesses in the community, Redwood City Nursery's expert staff digs through an assortment of flowers, trees, fertilizers, grasses, and gardening supplies. Most of its full-time employees have more than 20 years of nursery experience, lending thoughtful guidance on how to quickly spruce up a garden with colorful annuals or the most tactful way to let prickly pine branches know that they’re shedding. Pick up a six-pack of annuals ($3.05) to fill flower beds that have been empty since the youngest Cabbage Patch Kid left for college, or spice up dinners with a healthy selection of herbs and vegetables. Cantankerous cacti can be placed in a customer-selected container by request, and birdhouses and bird feeders attract welcome feathered friends, as opposed to unwelcome feathered friends like Darrell.
